Let it Rain



Finally. It's been seven months since we've had any real rainfall at Flippist World Headquarters. Even our snowfalls this winter were on the skimpy side- I only shoveled twice, neither time memorable. A good old summer thunderstorm came through about an hour ago, (about three months early) and I can hear another wave rolling in. In the sand pit I call home it could rain every day for a month and we'd dry out the very next day.

Of all the weather we get (except for tornadoes) drought is the most worrisome. Not that worrying helps any. Drought = death and what's even worse- drought = boring.

Was sitting at a windowside table at Erte last night as the storm rolled in. Lightning flashes and all, it made me remember how much I have missed a good summer thunderstorm - this coming on the eve of the first day of spring. Wonderful!

The lightning gets the frost out of the ground, so I've heard...

Very dry here in California, too - finally getting some good storms off the Pacific in the last week or two. Oh, how I miss lightening storms - we almost never get them here.

We are getting it up here today. Just a nice gentle soaker, though. The ground is actually thawed enough to absorb most of it!
